He was everything she never wanted. Yet, she couldn’t stop thinking about him.
Soulful, amber eyes
A sex, drugs, and rock n’roll reputation
A body that beckoned for sin
Three years ago Rochelle Floros was living her dream come true… then lost it all. On the worst day of her life, the last person she expected to be there for her was a rock star and tabloid favorite. Now, she’s trying to rebuild her life after the tragedy that destroyed her fairytale. Slowly, she found herself captivated by a sexy, bad boy drummer she had known for years.
Rochelle was caught between the grief that shrouded her heart and the charismatic man that made it race. What she didn’t know is if he was being sincere or toying with her heart. The Redemption is about finding the pulse of your soul in the most unlikely places and giving love a chance to grow.
Can what she wants really be what she needs? With his rhythm and her passion, can they make music together? Or will their harmony be lost forever?

“Here’s the truth of the matter. If we do this... again, there’s no going back to
square one tomorrow. Not for me. I won’t be able to act like I don’t care about you, like
I haven’t thought about you every day since we were together last. So it’s easier to stop
now than later.”
With a discouraged sigh, I say, “You’re stronger than me, Dex.”
“No, I just know my greatest weakness is the woman beneath me right now.” He
rolls over sighing in a way that shows frustration has set in. Turning his head to me, he
says, “I want to fuck you so bad, but I also want to do all that making love stuff too. And
if we do that, I can’t pretend it didn’t happen.” He sits up and walks to the other side of
the room, leaning his back against the wall.
I prop myself up on my elbows, caught by the heaviness of the emotions I’m
suddenly feeling for him.
“Go to sleep tonight. Fly home tomorrow.” He walks into the shadow of the
entryway. “I’ll see you in a few weeks.”
I hear the door open as I fall back on the bed, my own sexual frustration setting in.
But just when I hear the door close, the weight of his body lands on top of me and he
kisses me hard. Surprised, my eyes fly open, but then I go for it just like him and kiss
him back with just as much passion. He pushes off of me again and stands between my
legs. “I make very few promises in life, but this one I can make to you. Rochelle Floros,
I’m coming for you. It’s our time, so get ready for me.” He turns abruptly and leaves me
sitting there stunned... and tingly.
Have you ever dated someone, but secretly loved their best friend... Who may or may not have been a man whore? I know I have and only felt pain from the back lash that comes with it... And Dex and Rochelle have the same but, with twist of the loss of the middle man. They have the opportunity to have it all but, he is linger in her background, pulling the loss even harder.
